Working with people around the world—from fishermen to government leaders, divers to scientists, Californians to Fijians—the Coral Reef Alliance protects our most valuable and threatened ecosystem. We lead holistic conservation programs that improve coral reef health and resilience and are replicated across the globe. Join us!

On September 20th, CORAL will be honoring our 20th anniversary with a special evening celebrating reefs and the power of community conservation. Mark your calendars to join us at San Francisco’s acclaimed California Academy of Sciences for a night of delicious food and drink, conversation with our international field team, and the awarding of the first CORAL Conservation Prize to an individual who has demonstrated extraordinary achievement in driving forward local coral reef conservation efforts.

When you buy something, a portion of the proceeds comes back to us to protect coral reefs. Shop for CORAL merchandise
